Jc Imbeault, Joshua Ariizumi, li haifeng,
mySQL qill handle japanese just fine. I have a PHP4 script that let
users enter data using a <FORM>. The data is then sent to mySQL for
storage. I can then use PHP to retrieve the data and display on the web
browser. I didn't need to do anything special. Just pass the data to
Be careful that your web browser supports the particular language you
want. In my case Netscape won't display things properly unles I set the
character set to Japanese.
PS When I view the mySQL data using the mySQL command line interface
though all I see is garbage because my linux machine can't display
japanese characters. But eventhou it looks like garbage it isn't and
displays properly on a web browser.
